Part 1: Some in Kingston continue the Cash Price GIMMICK which is REALLY FRUSTRATING!!! My observation is that some stations like Hess ALWAYS have competitive prices with NO higher price for Credit Cards, and Stewart's Shops, and Quick-Chek have joined them again. But since the Cash Price GIMMICK prices became popular around here, most other stations didn't actually lower their prices for cash, but actually raise their prices for credit cards!!! Very few drivers even have cash to pay, so they either drive away without filling, or get scammed by the GIMMICK into paying the higher credit card price. (Previous GB polls have confirmed the no-fill or even drive away response.) Thankfully, all stations on Ulster Ave & Albany Ave except sunoco have stopped the Gash Price GIMMICK, but those unfamiliar with the area will continue to be deceived/scammed by the GIMMICK players (and the GasBuddyers that post the deceptive Cash Only prices)!!!
